“How do you spell customer?”
“C. o. z. t-” started my joking response.
“No seriously. Take a look at this!”
It’s then that she showed me the splash image for a video on the Google AdWords homepage (seen below).
How long does it take you to see their goof? Hint: It’s not the tiny text!
“Attact more costumers” Really Google?
Now I’ll give them a free pass on costumers, as that is a real word and wouldn’t be underlined by SpellCheck. I wonder how many levels of engineers it passed through before being approved?
However, I can’t give them an excuse for “attact.” Even as I write this quick blog article, the word attact is being underlined every single time thanks to WordPress. (And it’s getting just a little annoying, haha.)
To see the blunder yourself, visit www.adwords.com. After you get redirected around the planet, you’ll see a video on the left hand side with the goof. If you’re an adwords regular, however, you’ll need to login with a browser you don’t normally use to view the site as you’ll be cookied and shown a different page with a static image instead of a video.
This is a fun reminder that the bigger you are, the more important your use of SpellCheck becomes… Cheers!
